How many pets have you had?

I've had three dogs and an indeterminate number of fish. Our dog died today in his sleep, poor guy.

  • In the past:
    2 dogs
    2 cats
    5 fish

    Currently:
    2 puppies
    1 cat
    14 chickens
    1 cow (he's from a bigger herd that we have on our farm but this is a baby I take care of specifically).

    Even though some of these are farm animals, I still count them as pets since I take care of them every day and they all have names. Lol

    • He was very sick! Dying in his sleep seems like a good way to go.

    • Yeah, I'm sure it was painless for him which is good.

  • I've had 4 pets, all dogs. 2 of them died awhile ago, but I have 2 dogs still alive. Here are my favorite pictures of them all.

    Buddy -- my first dog. New Foundland mutt. Super chill dog and drooled a ton.

    Speed -- about a year younger than Buddy. Lasted a few years longer. He liked chewing plastic bottles and would pop off caps of closed water bottles and stuff lol. Named speed because he was paranoid and his eyes made him look like he was on drugs.

    Piper -- when she was a really little puppy. Now she is fat and nicknamed "twinky"

    Belle -- Belle is the dog on the left, getting punched. She is super hyper and plays rough xD

  • Two parakeets and one cat.
    First parakeet flew away.
    Second parakeet got sick and died literally in front of my eyes.
    The cat went for a walk like always but never came home. Searched and couldn't find.

    • My friend's dog was run over a few months ago. They live out in the countryside - her collar was knocked off when she was hit so the girl who hit her went door to door until she found the house. Poor kid - apparently she was only 17 or so.

    • That's sweet of her, not a lot of people will do that.

  • 9 pets, not including over a dozen fish.

  • Two turtles
    A hamster
    A rabbit
    4 cats
    And 8 dogs total

    Two of the dogs didn't hang around long. One we found and the stupid owner found out where he was, the dog ran away from them and was whining when he was taken from us. Ugh.

    The the other one my father took from me, claiming he would keep him for me but he lied and gave it away to some strangers who knew his ex girlfriend

    Ew

    All animals deserved to die in their sleep. It saves you the pain especially so you dont have to have them put down -_-

  • I've probably had about 30-40 fishes now as we used to buy 8-10 tiny fish, 1 garbage fish to clean up their poop, and multiple brands of different types of fish in our tank. Right now we have a 14 year old dog that we got about 6-8 weeks after it was born. We plan on putting it to sleep next year.

    • Is the dog ill? Ours had fairly advanced cancer (so we weren't surprised when we found him).

    • Its not ill but after 15 years - they usually die from old age. The average lifespan is 15 years.

    • One of our dogs lived until she was 17. She was perfectly healthy up until the last six months of her life.

  • I've had a LOT of cats. Let's just leave it at that. I would never be able to guess the correct number.
